Time Out says

Winner of five awards from the Israeli Film Academy, Cedar's poignant coming-of-age film is set in the West Bank in 1981, when Jews were first establishing settlements. Rachel (Eshet)—a 42-year-old widow and mother of two rebellious teenage girls (Furstenberg and Maron)—hopes to join one of these planned communities. But without a husband to assist with heavy lifting and prayers, her family is viewed as a liability. Reluctantly, Rachel agrees to go on blind dates while her daughters enter romantic quandaries of their own; these encounters are awkward, charming and devastating.
